Debunked: Did Amy Schumer sue Judd Apatow? Only Murders in the Building joke explored

Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building has finally returned for its long-awaited season 2 with new faces such as Amy Schumer and Cara Delevigne.

However, one particular line from the sequel’s premiere episode is raising people’s eyebrows. During the scene, Schumer might have hinted that she had sued filmmaker Judd Apatow.

Here is everything you need to know.

Did Amy Schumer sue Judd Apatow?

Amy Schumer’s character is introduced within 15 minutes into the opening episode where we see her bumping into Oliver Putnam.

During the conversation, Putnam asks Schumer whether she is suing him.

The Parks and Recreation star jokingly responds, ‘No, I only sued Judd Apatow.’

This particular caught the attention of fans and left them wondering if the 41-year-old actress sued Apatow.

However, Schumer never publicly sued the filmmaker which means that it was just dialogue from the series.

Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow’s relationship

Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow have previously worked together for 2015’s rom-com film Trainwreck starring Bill Hader.

Schumer wrote and starred in what was her feature film debut while Apatow served as the director. 

The comedy film went on to earn a whopping $140.8 million at the box office across the globe. Schumer even bagged a Golden Globe nomination for her performance.

Regardless, many believe the duo to be quite close and deem Apatow as a mentor figure to the actress during her transition from stand-up comedy to the big screen.

Furthermore, the pair never had a public falling out which likely proves that Schumer did not sue Apatow in reality.

Everything we know about Only Murders in the Building Season 2

The story picks up where it left off in the first season’s final episode with a jaw-dropping cliff-hanger.
